Fatty Sling

Fatty Crab; Manhattan

Cocktail expert David Wondrich conceived the Fatty Sling as a nod to Donn Beach, the famous owner of the tiki-themed restaurant Don the Beachcomber. Beach, Wondrich says, "liked combining dashes of Pernod and Angostura bitters to give his concoctions a je ne sais quoi."
